Now playing info occasionally stops updating. This isn't new and only affects some users, looking into a long term solution. Killing and restarting the app will fix the issue temporarily.
Tapping Downcast's icon on the iPadOS dock doesn't bring the app to the foreground. This is almost certainly an iPadOS bug, but I'm looking into it.
iOS 13 - Dark background in navigation bar after dismissing the player view while in light mode. This appears to be an iOS bug. To work around it, just rotate your device to landscape and back.
Unable to play downloaded episodes that use .mpga extension - Fixed in v2.9.35

Lingering crashes - Improved in v2.9.34
Playback freezes after disconnecting from Chromecast - Fixed in v2.9.34
Playback freezes near end of BBC podcasts - Fixed in v2.9.34
This was caused by an encoding error on the publisher's end causing playback to stop within a few seconds of the end of each episode. Audio will still stop at this point but playback will no longer become stuck. Only the publisher can correct the root cause of episodes ending early. This seems to have been corrected in more recent episodes.

HomePod AirPlay issues
This isn't likely a problem with Downcast. HomePod is treated just like any other AirPlay device or external audio route. There haven't been any similar reports of AirPlay troubles with other devices, so this feels like a HomePod issue or the combination of HomePod and certain WiFi networks.
Should be fixed or significantly improved in v2.9.30
Issues manually reordering playlists.
This seems to mostly be an issue while feeds are being refreshed. For now, please try to avoid doing this in the middle of a feed refresh.
Should be resolved in v2.9.30
